Dance Teacher Summit- New York City
At the top of our game
The Dance Teacher Summit brings together dance teachers and studio owners from all across the world! In this exciting weekend teachers meet for a series of master dance classes from legends in the business. Our instructors experienced classes in musical theater, contemporary, ballet, jazz, modern, ballroom, hip hop & more.
Passion for learning is contagious
Young children are greatly influenced by their environment. That’s why, at db studios, we make a love of learning contagious for our students. We look for teachers who are enthusiastic about continuing their own education, and who are passionate about seeking better ways to facilitate and inspire learning for students with many different types of learning styles. We believe that teachers who find joy in the pursuit of their own professional growth not only inspire our students but foster a love of learning as well.
Improve student outcomes
The dance world is constantly evolving with new styles and methods developing each year. As a discipline it’s important that teachers stay up to date on current trends, choreography styles, teaching techniques and more in order to stay competitive. The dance world is one that evolves so rapidly that continuing education affords us as teachers more effective ways to reach our students. Yet far too many studios still use outdated, ineffective teaching and assessment methods.
Staying on top of new teaching techniques ensures that teachers are on top of injury prevention. In this day and age dancers are learning much more difficult tricks, jumps, and turns at an earlier age and are therefor more prone to injury. Staying on top of the newest injury prevention methods is of the utmost importance to ensure the longevity of our dancers.
